Krueger into World Cup of Hockey final

By SFC Media Mon 26 Sep Club

Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger has led his Team Europe side into the final of the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

Krueger, who is coaching the squad, has overseen a fairytale run through the competition that has surprised many observers.

Team Europe is comprised of players from eight European countries, excluding the continent’s top four ice hockey nations – Russia, Finland, Sweden and Czech Republic – who are all represented individually.

The team entered the tournament as rank outsiders, but Krueger has led them on an incredible journey, which has taken them all the way to this week’s best-of-three final, against hosts and hockey powerhouse Canada.

“It's important we don't get giddy,” said Krueger. “We want to give Canada and the world a really good final.”

The Saints chairman, who has previously coached the Swiss national team and the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers, oversaw a 3-2 overtime victory against Sweden in the semi-finals on Sunday night.

Tomorrow, they will begin their series against Canada, who they finished second to in the group stage.
